Janeane Garofalo Married: Comedian Hitched For 20 Years And Didn't Even Know It

Who says Hollywood marriages can't stand the test of time?

For comedian Janeane Garofalo, staying married for 20 years was a cinch -- perhaps because she had absolutely no idea she was still hitched to her '90s boyfriend.

The 48-year-old says she married "The Big Bang Theory" producer Rob Cohen "as a joke" in 1991, but didn't think the nuptials had actually stuck.

She tells the New York Post: "We got married drunk in Vegas ... We dated for a year, and we got married at a drive-through chapel in a cab. [We thought] you have to go down to the courthouse and sign papers and stuff, so who knew?"

At this weekend's reunion of "The Ben Stiller Show," she added, "We were married, and apparently now that [Rob] is getting married for real, his lawyer dug up something.”

Cohen is now engaged to Jill Leiderman, a producer on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."
